Bringing you my cozy kitchen window! Because it’s a Wednesday and we need the mid week pick me up. I guess I shouldn’t speak for all of us.. I need the mid week pick me up. :) So step into my snowy Christmas village and relax! It’s straight out of a Hallmark movie and I’m not one bit mad about it.
Honestly this little Christmas scene in my kitchen window has cheered me up immensely this week and it was so easy to put together! I placed 3 command hooks on my window molding (one in each corner where the cabinet starts and one in the middle behind my pendant) and then I just hung my all time favorite faux garland! I used two 6 foot strands on each side for a thicker look (so there are 4 strands total). It looks just like fresh real garland without the mess!
I hung 5 of my beautiful jeweled snowflake ornaments from the tiny nails I have on the backside of my molding and then I added my beloved birch trees and some cozy light up houses. (These exact houses sold out but I linked lots of fun options below!) Last I sprinkled faux snow – the closest thing to snow we’ll get this holiday season. Magic!
I’ll share pics of my snowy window scene during the day soon (didn’t have time to photograph it today!) but I did get a quick picture of the display below my cabinet. I wanted to extend the snowy forest/village look so I added one more little birch tree and a few other bottle brush trees and more faux snow on my antiqued metal tray.
This is the same tray I used to display candles and pumpkins on my table in October and it has honestly been one of my favorite purchases this year. It’s so long and beautiful and the styling options are endless! (I have the large size.)
I’ve been burning my favorite Christmas candle this week and it just makes 2020 blur and suddenly all is right in the world! It’s “fir and firewood” and smells just like an evergreen forest. At Christmas. In a Hallmark movie. Catch the theme I’m going for this year? ;) It’s to die for and soon my friends will be enjoying it too because I always buy extra for gifts! I snapped a pic next to the faux snow I used in my kitchen because I’ve tried lots and it’s my favorite!
In other home news the Christmas decorating is coming along! Some rooms are finished and just need to be photographed. Some rooms are 70% done and need to be pulled together with this and that. And then there are rooms like my formal dining room that are seasonally challenged. *Notice the mix of pumpkins and a tree. But I wanted to share this real time pic with you because this tree is the other flocked tree I bought this year and I absolutely love it! I haven’t even touched it yet other than initial set up so the branches still need to be fixed and fluffed, but I LOVE the look of it! (This pic doesn’t do it justice!) It’s so beautiful at night (the white lights are large and covered in flocking and so pretty). I know it’s behind my table, but I just thought it would be fun to mix it up this year and put a tree in front of our dining room window. We won’t be hosting large parties this year like we usually do (for obvious reasons!) so I moved my dining room bench and set up my tree there instead! It looks so pretty from the outside!
This is the other new tree I bought (so you can compare the two different looks). It’s decorated and I’ll be sharing it soon! I was worried buying two new trees online this year without seeing them first but I love them. Really great quality and exactly what I was looking for. I would absolutely recommend either tree if you are looking for a new faux flocked tree this year! Really happy with them both. :)
Last but not least here are a few RP favorites that were released today! I honestly wanted to order every single thing in this collage! Except the red dress because I don’t look good in red. But it’s gorgeous for someone who does! That green sweater on the other hand has my name all over it. ;) I also ordered the wool wrap coat (I’ll let you know if I love it!) and several of the home decor items and will share how I’m using them soon. I just can’t resist cute Christmas decor! Or green sweaters.
I can think of worse things.
Happy Wednesday everyone! From my Hallmark movie scene to yours.
